Plans for Film DEAL ??


Best of luck Pat Monteath author of Operation Ferryman.

I believe the film maker has previously produced videos re the Richard Montgomery.

So maybe a rip roaring yarn is in the preparation stages.

It is the 1980s and Operation Ferryman has recruited 21 old and bold from the new dad's army at Broadstairs.

The geriatric lads are issued UDR ID cards and semtex and their suspicions are not the least aroused. off they go on "Bottle runs" gun toting into County Louth. One of them notes that a suspicious looking dwelling there needs a good survey before it gets a new owner. Positive fire hazard.

One of the lads, Nutpeas is his nickname, is a trained diver of the scuba variety. And it isn't long before the lads row him out in a dinghy to dive on the Richard Montgomery. Still not sure who is the source of their UDR ID cards the lads set to with an assessment. and they conclude that if the Monty goes up it will be a helluva bang.

Luckily, nearby, Operation Zebedee The Magic Roundabout - Zebedee pictuers -free pictures is well established at Deal Barracks ....

Inamos, one of the top men in Operation Ferryman, became a tad security lax. The matter of buying hemorrhoid cream in County Louth for his undercover problems. The Irish pharmacist had chatted away saying "Are ye one of those eejits from Broadstairs ?"

Inamos sussed that their cover was blown. But their local contact, a colonel in OIRA, reassured them that all was well. And the lads' suspicions were not in the least aroused.

Back to Broadstairs for debrief.

Meanwhile in County Louth the OIRA man was enjoying a pint with his mates. "I got da silly coonts diving on the Richard Montgomery. I'm working on convincing Zebedee he's an Irish clan chief now."

You couldn't write it as fiction ......

Best of luck with this Pat.
